ping seem willing to back down so far the us has slept terrorists on $550000000000.00 worth of chinese products china in return has said levies on $185000000000.00 worth of u.s. goods that amounts to $735000000000.00 in total and that figure could just be the tip of the iceberg the tit for tat terror of scav or a wide array of goods from steel and aluminum to meat and fish vegetables mushrooms and nuts to backhoe and jews many sectors are affected on both sides of the pacific now as you've heard later today mr trump will meet chinese vice premier you had passed meetings between the 2 have yielded progress for example in january china increased its soybean purchases and the february talk resulted in a delay in tariffs now for more on this topic let's bring in ranko berridge he is

have already delayed the imposition of a certain set of consumer tariffs in order to avoid hitting u.s. consumers christmas so from beijing this looks like a blink it looks like a little bit of hesitation so that's probably fair to say the chinese think their current strategy of action and persistence is pressuring the white house so i would be surprised if they were pushing back still on those intellectual property provisions branco berridge had of market taking a look at the 13th round of trade talks between the us and china thank you so much . here's agency reuters reports c.e.o. tim cook has defended the company's decision to remove a paulo says police tracking app used in hong kong says the firm made the decision after it received quote credible information the app had been used maliciously to target individual police officers but means that violated hong kong all and thereby
